SANFORD - Central Carolina Community College, Randolph Community College, and Sandhills Community College have partnered to offer a regional workforce solution to the demand for Commercial Truck Drivers in the combined service areas of Chatham, Harnett, Hoke, Lee, Moore, and Randolph counties.

This is a 12-week, 400-hour training course that will prepare students for the Class A Commercial Driver License. The first cohort will begin March 28 at Central Carolina Community College operating Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The truck driver training program provides instruction in both theory and practical -- hands-on behind-the-wheel operation of tractor-trailers preparing students to safely operate tractor-trailer vehicles on the road to and from pickup and delivery points. Emphasis is placed on defensive driving, Federal Motor Carrier Safety regulations, trip planning, cargo handling, vehicle systems, hours of service, and accident prevention. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate the skills required for the commercial driver's license and employment.

Scholarships are available to support students wishing to pursue this training course.
